Marlowe offers students the opportunity to participate in band, choir, or orchestra (new in 2015-2016).
Each option is offered as a credit-bearing class during the school day, not as an extracurricular requiring rehearsals before or after school.
The benefits of participating in music are numerous and lasting. Students who decide to learn to to play an instrument or sing can use this skill and knowledge for the rest of their lives. There is nothing like the joy of performing music with friends. It happens every day in school groups and continues for adults who still to play in community bands and choirs or for those who perform professionally. In all cases, performing music can be an exhilarating experience.
In addition, studies have shown that learning to play an instrument enhances a student’s academic performance in math, language arts, foreign language and other academic areas. Even standardized test scores are higher among musicians. In addition, participation in music is increasingly a valued factor in college admissions decisions.
